This Bluffton couple made a decision a couple of years ago that they could take charge of their own health by making small changes in their diet and movement to lose over 100 pounds between both of them.  It took them to get to the point of not feeling good most of the time and some declining health issues to propel them to make some changes for the long-term.

Motivated by the option of going on blood pressure medicine in 2014, Carl decided it was time to take his health into his own hands. The doctor informed Carl that he must lose weight to decrease his risks of a heart attack. At that time, Carl weighed 440 pounds. After making a life-change by instituting one hour of walking every day and changing his eating habits on the road, he has successfully lost over 130 pounds since that early diagnosis of obesity and high blood pressure.
